May Colloquy: The Art of Christian Institutional Ministry

 May 2, 2018 at 9:50 AM

The Rev. Laura Everett


Rev. Laura Everett serves as the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches, scouting for signs of Christian unity and dedicated to repairing vibrant Christian institutions. A pastor ordained by the United Church of Christ, Laura toggles between established Christian communities and emerging ministries with Boston’s cycling community. She’s the author of “Holy Spokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels.”   

Laura is also the co-host with Rev. Bill Lamar of the new podcast “Can These Bones” from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School.

As a life-long artist, Laura makes meaning by working with her hands.  As a pastor, she strives for artistry in her institutional Christian leadership. She believes the work of this moment is to notice and dismantle the racism that has divided this nation and the Church.  She’s convinced that if we’re all not free, it isn’t the gospel truth. Laura lives in Boston with her wife Abbi, who has a far more interesting vocation as a public middle school Latin teacher.
